For a stadium that was dead at first pitch, this one has certainly come alive in the last couple innings.
After the Yankees scored three off C.J. Wilson in the second and kept the Rangers scoreless in the top of the third, they came out swinging once more in the bottom half. Leading off against Wilson, Nick Swisher lifted an 0-1 inside fastball into the left field seats down the lone for a solo home run.
That put the Yankees up four. The next batter was Robinson Cano, and he took a 1-0 slider down and away into the right-center seats, just above a leaping Nelson Cruz. That put the Yankees up five, and gave them back-to-back home runs by the second and third hitters in their order.
At 5-0, this feels like a commanding position for CC Sabathia. Rangers fans can probably plan on seeing a Game 6 at home.
